Summer Solstice, Strawberry Full Moon 

2024’s Summer Solstice occurs on Thursday, June 20th, at 1:50 PM PDT, followed by the Strawberry Full Moon at 6:08 PM PDT on Friday, June 21st. 

And the Pagan Interest Circle’s June Ritual is Saturday, June 22nd, at 7 PM!

The Summer Solstice, the longest day and shortest night, is known as Litha or Midsummer on the Pagan Wheel of the Year, when the powers of the sun are at their zenith. 


The Strawberry Full Moon’s energy is about embracing the sweetness of life and celebrating nature’s surrounding abundance.


Come to the Pagan Interest Circle (PICT) for Sun and Moon Magic this Saturday night, June 22nd, at 7 PM! Hear the Wiccan story of the Solar God and the Lunar Goddess as they dance around the Wheel of the Year! Learn why the Fey are so prominent this time of year! We’ll create SunCatchers and eat lucious strawberries. We’ll bless fathers and consecrate sunscreen! We’ll sing chants and maybe do a new dance as part of the festivities. Be sure to bring sunscreen for the ritual. Also, to celebrate abundance, bring finger food or a non-alcoholic beverage to share!


Got a question? Contact Christine Patch-Lindsay at Please ensure that you respond by no later than 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 22nd.


For over 20 years the Pagan Interest Circle (PICT) of the First Unitarian  Universalist Church Society of San Francisco, a Chapter organization of  CUUPS, has been meeting for monthly Full Moon Rituals on the Saturday evening closest to the Full Moon, and for the solar pagan holidays of Winter Solstice and  Beltane. We are an open circle dedicated to providing ritual space for all respectful families and individuals of any age. Our policy requires that our rituals are clean and sober, drugs, alcohol, fragrance and animal free. Individuals who rely on an animal companion are welcome but will need to secure their animal away from the the ritual room/space.
